Maybe that person doesn't want to talk to you? Seriously, look and make sure you put a 1 and the area code on their number. When calls fail it's usually the number not the phones.

Wirelessly posted

It depends where you are calling to and what you are using to pay (local card or your own carrier from home). Use a prepaid local sim is best.
